Comic: Midnight Trooper

This is Pi Day #031

Happy New Years! …almost. Well, tomorrow night, actually. The publication schedule didn’t quite work out this year.

Alas, as the first calendar year of This is Pi Day draws to a close here are some statistics from 2017:

67 new published comics, shorts, and strips!
380 new Instagram fans for almost 100 posts!
390 new Twitter fans for almost 1000 tweets!
3100 unique visitors to this website!
…and as of this post, this website has now running off a Canadian web server for three days!

It’s amazing what you can accomplish with a little creativity, almost no free time, and a goofy idea… especially when you have great fans supporting and sharing your work.

See you in 2018 for more comics, more dad jokes, and officially counting down to March 14th … y’know… pi day.

Comic: Canada Day 150

This is Pi Day #009

In case you haven’t seen it mentioned on my Facebook group, my Twitter feed, or my Instagram wall, this comic is officially a “Product of Canada”

Yes, we have parents here too.

And comics.

And internet.

And this strip was not only published on Canada’s birthday, but on a BIG birthday, a milestone birthday. We’re one hundred and FIFTY today. Which I believe is the legal voting age of nations. Old. Out of that awkward pubescence of young countries, coming into our own in the world, moving out of our parents basement in a pan-Atlantic apologetic-brexit kind of way.

As this strip goes live (and since these blurbs and comics are now written weeks in advance, I’m assuming no catastrophic changes to that plan) I’ll be just finishing up a 15 kilometer Canada Day road race and then lining up for my free annual allocation of celebratory pancakes. (It’s like free health care but with more maple syrup.)

So, what I’m saying is, if you’re not from here, find someone who is and give them a classic Canadian Beaver Bump or buy them a Moose Knuckle Sandwich to show them that you care.

Happy Canada Day! And stay tuned: I’ve got big plans for the next 150…
